Belgian BASE jumper Cedric Dumont got a unique view of an ancient wonder of the world with a wingsuit flight over Egypt’s pyramids on Thursday.
The 43-year-old is responsible for other memorable jumps, including a leap from the Royal Gorge Bridge in Cañon City, Colorado, and some of the lowest jumps ever attempted. (Lower jumps are more dangerous because there’s less time for the parachute to open.)
“This was one of my favorite jumps,” Dumont told Scoop Empire. “It’s in the top three, because of the visuals. It was insane, seeing the pyramids, and seeing them get bigger and bigger.”
